From the Paper:

"According to the news article being critiques, Savoie could face up to five years in prison if convicted. This strict stance stimulated the international focus (Yamaguchi, 2009). In a later article published October 16, 2009 in the Washington Times, Yamaguchi reports Japanese officials released Savoie from jail on October 15, 2009, after he served 18 days.
"Kyung Lah, in Tokyo, Japan, Aaron Cooper, Saeed Ahmed and Carolina Sanchez (2009), in Atlanta, Georgia, all reporters for CNN, assert in the article, "American jailed in Japan for trying to reclaim his children," that if this particular custody battle had been fought out in the U.S., Christopher Savoie may have been perceived as a hero. "But this story unfolds 7,000 miles away in the Japanese city of Fukuoka, where the U.S. legal system holds no sway" (Lah, Cooper, Ahmed & Sanchez, 2009, 3). Savoie's ex-wife, Noriko, according to this source, considered the "victim" in Japan is considered a fugitive in the U.S. and would be arrested if she returned to the United States. Contrary to U.S. law, Japan law does not perceive parental child abduction is as a crime."
